Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    One of the better environments I've worked in

    Pros

    Pays well, good benefits, very fun work environment, lots of perks, work from home, some fun business travel (role dependent). You're not just a number, your ideas matter, and there is plenty of opportunity to move up, sideways, or whatever direction you'd like to go. Work/Life balance is as good as it gets.

    Cons

    A bit disorganized, a little top heavy, almost nothing happens quickly, and training could be better. If you want something to get done in a hurry, you have to push. If you're not a self starter and need hand holding, there are probably better companies for you out there than Parallels. For me, this place is a great fit.
